Snowy Crossing Over Kitchen Creek by 


This was my very first shot of the day, taken shortly after Mark Van Scoyc and I began our winter hike through Ricketts Glen. This site is located along the lower falls trail, not far from the State Route 118 Trailhead. The photo was captured just as it appeared on the very last day of 2012.

The image was captured hand-held with a Canon 5D camera through a Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L professional lens. The lens’s focal length was set to 40mm. The shutter speed was 1/100th of a second @ f/7.1. The camera’s ISO was set to 400, to allow the shot to be captured without a tripod.

This series of Ricketts Glen waterfall photographs were captured on December 31st, 2012, during an 8 hour winter hike & shoot with photographer Mark Van Scyoc. Twelve of the twenty-two “named” waterfalls in the park were visited during this trip.

Ricketts Glen is located near the small rural village of Red Rock, PA, at the junction of Pennsylvania State Routes 118 and 487. The park is about midway between Williamsport and Wilkes Barre Pennsylvania, in the north eastern region of the USA.

WARNING: Ricketts Glen waterfall trails are extremely dangerous in the winter months! They are closed to the public from late November unit spring. Winter hiking is only permitted if you are a well-equipped hiker with previous icy condition hiking or climbing experience. Each climber must register and sign in before entering the trails and must also sign out after the hike. Crampons, Ice axes and climbing ropes are absolutely required. This is NOT just a “walk in the park”.

Your comments are always welcome! Constructive criticism is appreciated.

Hello, My name is Gene. I live in the Susquehanna river valley (West Branch), in the mountains of north central Pennsylvania. I strive to produce photographic images that are simply “true” to the subject, usually with minimal post processing. If something is beautiful or interesting enough to deserve a viewer’s attention, it justifies being captured just as it is …or as close to reality as possible.
